Which are the actual summertime regulations?
In 2018, summer time shall be from 11 March 2018 at 2 a.m. (local time) to 4 November 2018 at 2 a.m. (local time). Which are the actual summertime regulations? Summer time? What is summer time? Summer time is the time span of the year in which the watches are advanced one second.
Our watches move one hours forward at the beginning of summer time and one hours back ("spring forward, fall back ") when we go back to ST time. Switching from ST to DST has the effect of shifting one hours of natural light from dawn to dusk.
DST to ST transitions move effective one hours of natural light from night to morn. What effect will the summer time regulations have on me? Adjustments for your locale time zones and summer time are made by your computer's OS. Therefore, when using NTP, it is especially important to use an OS that has been patch to comply with the new summer time regulations.
What effect will the summer time regulations have on me? It should be possible for your radio-controlled watch to convert the summer time regulations to daylight saving time by itself. WWVB broadcasts contain information that indicates to your watch whether daylight saving time or daylight saving time is current. When the time after the daylight saving time conversion is incorrect, make sure that your watch has recently picked up the time beep.
A lot of radio-controlled watches have a synchronisation display that shows you whether your watch has recently been synchronised. When the watch is not picking up the signals, click here for some hints on how to improve it. When it has recently detected the audio stream, verify that the clock's time zones are correctly adjusted.
If you are living in an area where summer time is not monitored (e.g. Arizona), you must deactivate the auto summer time feature on your watch. A few watches have the old date rules set and do not use the part of the time codes that indicates whether summer time is effective or not.
It may be necessary to switch the time zones or the DST ON/OFF feature momentarily so that the watch displays the correct hours for the time between the old rule transitional data and the new one. My watch is a non-radio watch that used to correct itself for daylight saving time before.
You can only find out if you just sit back and watch or consult the watchmaker. A large number of non-radio watches are sold under brand labels such as "AUTOSET" or "SMARTSET" and have an in-house software that changes the time on transitional day to and from summer time period 1 hr later.
When you have a watch that is failing due to the new rule, your only option is to set the watch manual or get in touch with the vendor and request an update or replace. You can find further information in our summer time FAQ. Please click here.
